This area of the website is my hobby blog, it contains articles about games that I have enjoyed playing together with paining and model making articles.
Last year we added a number of packs of miniatures to our Classic Movie Miniatures range based on favourite films and TV shows. These were figures which we felt would work particularly well with Pulp miniature games such as Pulp Alley and 7TV. One of my favourite packs is 'Everything but the Goose' based on Tales of the Gold Monkey. The pack was named as it had all of the main characters, even a model of the Gold Monkey to use as a plot point but was lacking the main star of the show, 'Cutters Goose'
Cutters Goose was the Gruman Seaplane operated by Jake Cutter to run a cargo delivery service around the Pacific Islands.
On Monday I had a day off as compensation for working the weekend at Salute, so finally got around to building the kit that my good friend Buck Surdu had kindly brought over for me from the States when he visited us last year.
The kit went together very easily, the pieces were a good fit. I have given the model a basic paint job which is inspired by the 'Goose' from the show rather than a direct copy.
I think that at this point it is good enough to use in a game, so I now just need to put some character cards together for a Pulp Alley league based on Jake, Corky, Sarah and Jack.
I am planning to make some decals at the weekend for the registration number and the 'Cutters Goose' logo, and hopefully will be posting a games report based on 'Tales of the Gold Monkey' in my hobby blog very soon.
